Woman's Forum: Potty Issues
I use a humanure compost pile on my property and when i car camp (used to vandwell) .ive tried lots of stuff. Im currently preferring the wood pellets for neatness. Since i line my buckets with kitchen trash bags 13g fit well, they control odor and fluff up, so $3 of kitty litter pellets or $3 of hampster bedding lasts about the same amount of daily use. I dont separate my business. Tho the commercial seperators like the Separette are really nice and i cant fit the expense in my budget. I have bought and used both tiny kitty litter bags of pellets as well as $5 big bags ppl burn in pellet stoves. They work

Aw, gypsyvioleta, that's so sad. So sorry abbout your car!  I can't get a vehicle yet either, and not for the foreseeable future. In the meantime, I just keep reading the forum and watching the Utube videos. They say if you can picture it you can make it happen or something like that so I'm proceeding as tho my future life as a nomad is just a matter of time. I hope the same for you. Keep us posted!

I have a composting toilet my husband built and it is comfortable, easy to use, etc., but i'm not sure about disposal. My husband will be pulling my 28" travel trailer with his 1 ton Dodge Van that he has converted to an rv for himself. This isn't an issue for him, but me, it is. Any advise would be welcome. Huh

while I find the original message/answers to be quite informative and educational, I have to admit that I am more intrigued with the statement " my husband will be pulling my 28' tt with his 1 ton dodge van that he has converted to an rv for himself". That statement right there has me wishing/thinking....what a great set up. LOL Sounds like the best of both worlds. Was this by design? something that ya'll had planned/talked about before hand? what's the skinny on that decision? btw...loving it!!

I'm just collecting my plastics and papers for a recycling dump, and noticed something useful.

Purex Liquid Laundry Detergent:  opaque plastic bottle with a handle, holds 75 oz (9 cups).  The center spout can be pulled out with a pair of pliers, which leaves an opening 2.5" wide.  The threads are on the outside of the bottle, so the lid can be secured w/o the spout being in the bottle, which is not the case with all detergent bottles.

Just FYI.

LOL  I was thinking the same thing!  I'm single but if I were to ever find a male someone to travel with I would prefer he keep his place and I keep mine.

Absolutely.  When I was 17 I knew I was going to full time RV as soon as I could.  That was a little less than 50 years ago.  I have about a year a half before I will finally take off.  In the meantime, there was camping every summer.  And planning every year.  About 10 years ago the downsizing began.  I'm still doing that.  I've had disability in between as well and some surgeries.  I'm still going

Just keep planning.  I waited and got a better retirement outlook because of it.  Had time to gather my equipment like propane heaters and ovens and stoves, solar shower bags and tools.  Do a wish board and put it on your refrigerator.  I put a picture of a Class B on mine and had it a year later, inluding the $10k to buy it.

For now plan a backpack excursion you can take a bus trip to.  Mostly, visualize you going and believe you will.

You knew at 17? Awesome! I never considered it as a lifestyle until the last year or so, when a friend discovered Cheaprvliving.com and got me interested. Now she's dropped out and I'm all for it! Just bought a shower shelter, looking at lighting, heaters, stoves, etc. adding up the costs. Confused about a lot of the equipment and studying to sort it out. Congratulations on your Class B--my dream machine! I'm handicapped so can't backpack, can hardly carry a sack of potatoes let alone a backpack. I wish!! Thought about backpacking too late in life. Just finished reading "Wild" by Cheryl Strayed for the second time. Admire the way she made up her mind to backpack the PCT and never questioned whether she could do it, just went for it. That's what I'm planning to do to become a Nomad with tent, etc. until I can upgrade. Already have my first summer planned, heading for cooler pastures.  Working on the downsizing; should have kept my status when I lost all my stuff 10 years ago. Dummy me, accumulated a houseful again before I knew it. Now it's tough, because most everything has sentimental vallue. I'm going to ask my daughter what she wants and the rest is going, going, gone! I'm hoping to start full-timing January 1. Just need a vehicle. Are you going to RTR in January? I hope to, if I can get there.
